Party invites, and in extreme cases, even regular hangouts with friends are organized through Facebook events. “Remembering” birthdays has never been easier thanks to Facebook’s reminders. We now know exactly what everyone is up to, whether they are close friends or that persistent relative who just wouldn’t get the hint when you ignored their “friend request” the first ten times. How many of us contact friends, even those living in the same city, using Whatsapp, Viber, Gtalk, etc.?
It looks like Facebook, which has been [...]

With TV networks determined to “win the time slot” when it comes to the ratings war between their premier shows, many viewers are almost guaranteed to have to choose between several favorite shows on any given day.

They also told stories of how these constellations came to be. Thanks to today’s technology, we are able to see the real images of stars, planets, and other celestial objects in space.
